Children were found tied up in Walmart parking lot feet in a Lawrence Walmart parking lot. As part of a plea agreement with prosecutors, Adolfo Gomez pleaded no contest to two counts of child abuse — both felonies — and

three misdemeanor counts of child endangerment. The plea comes a week after Gomez’s wife, Deborah Gomez, 43, pleaded no contest to three counts of child endangerment.

Prosecutors and Adolfo’s attorney will recommend Adolfo be sentenced to 30 months in prison for the crimes at sentencing, scheduled for Feb. 8. Both Deborah and Adolfo

have been in custody since their arrests June 13. Douglas County prosecutors said the children have been placed in protective custody. As part of Deborah’s plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend she be sentenced Please see FATHER, page 2A Gomez

DOWNTOWN LAWRENCE has been aglow at night with holiday lights and busy shoppers.

By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

We’re now entering the overtime period of the holiday shopping season. With Thanksgiving coming early this year, there are five full weekends — instead of the more traditional four — between

Black Friday and Christmas, but Lawrence retailers said there will still be plenty of last-minute shopping going on this weekend. “The Saturday before Christmas is traditionally the biggest retail shopping day of the year,” said Joe Flannery, president of Weaver’s Department Store, 901 Massachusetts St. “It is bigger

than Black Friday by quite a bit. I think Saturday should be an exceptionally busy day.” The prospect has downtown retailers smiling because they said holiday sales totals already have been pretty good. Flannery estimated this year’s holiday totals are

When you think of gasoline price wars, you think about gas stations across the street from each other dueling for customers. But grocery store gas wars? That’s what’s going on in Lawrence these days, where Dillons and Hy-Vee are promoting their competing gasoline discount programs in an effort to build customer loyalty to their grocery business. The winners of the war Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo are customers, who can save as much as $2 for every gallon of gas GARY VANHOOSIER, who works for purchased at the chains’ affiliated Robertson & Williams Transport, unloads gas stations, if they play their gas gasoline Thursday at the Hy-Vee gas sta- cards right.

card, which offers loyal customers points that can be exchanged for gas-price discounts, for years. But the competition heated up earlier this month when Hy-Vee introduced its own gas discount program. Game on: Dillons is now offering double points for every dollar a customer spends through March, and quadruple if he or she buys a gift card in the store, with 10 cents a gallon off for every 100 points a customer earns. HyVee is offering discounts based on purchases of certain products. For example, purchasing 10 Hy-Vee Greek yogurts will save the buyer 10 cents a gallon until

Plans for a $25 million cityowned recreation center in northwest Lawrence are shifting as questions emerge about the propriety of Lawrence businessman Thomas Fritzel building the project without going through the city’s standard bid process. City officials on Friday released details of discussions they are having with the Kansas University Endowment KANSAS Association UNIVERSITY about a process that would allow other construction companies to submit bids for the work. But the proposal stops short of following the city’s standard open bidding process. “We’re trying to be open to making a public-private partnership work here,” City Commissioner Mike Dever said of the new proposal. “This is an unusual opportunity for Lawrence, but we’re doing all of this in the spirit of openness.” The new proposal would require KU Endowment to invite bids from two other contractors — of the Endowment Association’s choosing — in

to a year of probation. At Deborah’s plea hearing Dec 14, Douglas County District Judge Paula Martin — lifting a no-contact order — also opened the door for Deborah to have contact with her five children, ages 5, 7, 12, 13 and 15. That decision, however, will be made by another judge in the custody case. The 5- and 7-year-old were found bound outside the family’s van, while the other children were inside the vehicle, unbound. Testimony at prior hearings indicates the family was in Lawrence on its way from Illinois, heading to Arizona. Police used a Taser on Adolfo, who was uncooperative during the arrest. At previous hearings, Adolfo testified that he and his children were fearful of demon possession. In June, Martin declared Adolfo competent to stand trial. Adolfo, echoing his wife’s statements at her plea hearing, said, “I don’t

— City Commissioner Mike Dever be built on. KU Endowment has offered to donate the land to the city as part of a larger sports complex that would include a track and field stadium, soccer field, softball stadium and other amenities for KU Athletics. Fritzel is presumed to be the contractor for those improvements, and last week project officials confirmed the current proposal actually has Fritzel’s company owning those facilities and leasing them to KU. The city would own its recreation center, but KU Endowment has insisted on controlling construction of the center and then turning it over to the city after it is built. Dever on Friday said that insistence from KU is playing a role in why the city has not proposed a traditional bid for the center. “They are giving us a chance to build something remarkable and, as a result, there are a few strings attached,” Dever said. Dever said he thinks KU Endowment’s conditions on the project are reasonable. He estimated the KU facilities will represent an investment of at least $50 million. “If you had a chance to control what your neighbor’s property is going to look like in that situation,

I think most people would try to do that,” Dever said. But Dever said the new proposal does provide more clarity than the previous plan. Previously, KU Endowment had not proposed any type of competition related to who would serve as the general contractor or construction manager for the project. The previous proposal was that Bliss Sports and KU Endowment would select subcontractors for the project and would share the bid results with city commissioners after the bids had been awarded. Dever said the new proposal should ease concerns about whether Fritzel, who recently agreed to pay $50,000 to settle a development dispute with the city related to an apartment project in Oread Neighborhood, is giving the city a good deal. “This process will identify the magnitude of any gift associated with the project, or it will show the true value of the project,” Dever said. “Either way, the public wins.” But it was unclear Friday how KU Endowment would go about selecting the two other contractors that would be invited to bid on the project. The city’s standard bidding process publicly advertises projects available for bid, allowing any qualified company to compete for the work. An attempt to reach an official with KU Endowment for this article was unsuccessful. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at Twitter.com/clawhorn_ljw.

want to put my children through any more.” The two felony child abuse charges Adolfo pleaded to Friday carry maximum penalties of up to 50 months each, based on his criminal history. Adolfo’s court-appointed attorney, Skip Griffey, said they’ll need to file a motion asking Martin for a reduced sentence in the case to obtain the recommended 30-month sentence. “I think the recommendations that are on the record are a fair and equitable resolution,” Griffey said following the hearing. Adolfo will also be required to undergo a mental health examination. Griffey talked about some of the events leading up to the arrests. Adolfo hadn’t slept in days and was experiencing some mental health problems, Griffey said. A spokeswoman for the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office declined comment because the children’s custody cases are still active.

running about 5 percent ahead of last year’s figures. Retailers said the weather even has been playing its part well. For most of the season, it has been mild and comfortable for shoppers, but now a bit of snow has ramped up the holiday spirit. “I think it has helped put shoppers in the Christmas mood,” said Linda Lester, owner of The Etc. Shop, 928 Massachusetts St. “A little bit of snow never hurts.” Lester also said sales were tracking better than a year ago. “If you have what they want, people will still buy,” Lester said. Sue Shea, manager of the Phoenix Gallery, 825 Massachusetts St., said art sales had been doing well during the holiday season. She said she was uncertain that consumers were buying as many gifts as in past years, but she thought consumers were more willing to spend money for a high-quality gift.

zel controls. If either of the bids from the other two contractors is lower than Fritzel’s bid, Fritzel would have a chance to match the bid and receive the work. KU Endowment officials previously have said Fritzel is their presumed contractor for the facility. Fritzel has made an offer to the city to build the 181,000-square-foot recreation center, outdoor tennis courts and other amenities for a maximum price tag of $25 million. The city has an architectural estimate that projects the value of the improvements are closer to $33 million. A majority of city commissioners have said Fritzel’s offer, which they have viewed as a donation to the city, makes the project unique. But Dever confirmed he has heard from at least one local contractor who has expressed an interest in bidding on the project, and City Commissioner Mike Amyx has said he would like to see what other contractors can offer on the project. “I would love to see it traditionally bid,” Amyx said Friday. “You have public funds going into this, so that seems reasonable.” The project has another twist in that KU Endowment currently holds the rights to the approximately 20 acres that the city’s recreation center would

TWO SHOPPERS EXIT Sunflower Outdoor and Bike Shop, 802 Massachusetts St., Wednesday in downtown Lawrence. The Saturday before Christmas is usually the biggest shopping day of the year for retailers. “I think people are wiser with their shopping,” Shea said. “I think they really are trying to make every dollar count. Work that has been done by hand, those special sort of gifts are selling well.” The city sales tax collections showed consumers had been spending well leading up to the holiday season. The city’s most recent sales tax report, which tracked sales through mid-October, found sales in Lawrence were at $1.25 billion for the year, up about 6.3 per-

cent from a year ago. The sales tax totals were growing at their fastest pace since 1998. Flannery said he sees good momentum heading into 2013 for the Lawrence retail sector, as long as Congress comes up with some sort of compromise on the “fiscal cliff” talks. “For the good of America, they need to get something resolved on that,” Flannery said.

the points,” Protasio said. There are restrictions on the benefits, of course. Dillon’s allows a maximum savings of $2 per gallon, but that perk drops to a $1 limit on Jan. 1, and the points expire at the end of each month. The Dillons program is valid at stores in Kansas and at participating Kroger stores elsewhere, and the gas discounts are good at Dillons, Kwik Shop and Kroger gas stations. HyVee’s gas discounts, which have no limit and can be used at participating HyVee, Shell and Casey’s gas stations, expire 30 days after they’re earned. “Fuel has become a huge portion of customers’ expenses,” Andrew Yochum, manager of the Hy-Vee store at Clinton Parkway and Kasold in Lawrence, said. “A lot of people drive long distances for work, for school and for all sorts of things. It’s really a loyalty program for shopping with us for groceries.” At Dillons, spokeswoman Sheila Lourie said, “By providing these fuel rewards to our customers, we know that they appreciate those savings

on gas, so we look for that experience to give them another reason to shop at Dillon’s.” Everybody wins with these types of programs, said Jeff Lenard, spokesman for National Association of Convenience Stores. “The customer gets a discount,” Lenard said. “The gas retailer gets customer traffic. The gas brand gets more value for the brand in enticing other retailers to enter branding agreements, and the grocery store gets more traffic by linking shopping there to gas price sensitivity.”

Heated debate over guns on campus expected By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

Hardware stores, food pantries, retirees

whether to allow concealed guns on campuses of state universities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Definitely it will be back,â&#x20AC;? said Tim Emert of Independence. Noting the recent mass shooting at an elementary

school in Connecticut, Emert said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot of support, because of recent incidents, for stricter gun control, but then by the same token, there is growth among folks who believe that everybody should be armed.â&#x20AC;?

he nuts and bolts of the operation of Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two Westlake Ace Hardware stores have changed, but company officials are promising customers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice any changes in the, well, nuts and bolts and other items the company sells. Ace, the giant retail, hardware cooperative based in Oak Brook, Ill., has purchased the 85-store Westlake chain that operates Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two stores. If, at this point, you are thinking that Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two stores have long been named Westlake Ace Hardware, you are correct. But the stores have been owned by Lenexabased Westlake Hardware, which does its purchasing of inventory through the Ace cooperative. But the deal, which closed this week, means Ace now owns the Westlake stores. Since Ace long has been the supplier for the stores, product offerings at the store arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scheduled to change. A spokeswoman for Ace also told me that there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any plans to change store employees or how the stores are operated. No downsizing is anticipated as part of the deal. Shasha Bigda, director of corporate communications for Ace said consumers shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice anything different at the stores. That includes the name. Bigda said the Westlake brand will continue to be used at the stores. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That name is well-known in the markets it serves,â&#x20AC;? Bigda said. Reportedly, the deal was worth $88 million, and the terms of the purchase call for Westlakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s management team to remain in place and be based in Lenexa. The management team will report to a separate board within the Ace corporate structure. The deal represents a new strategy for Ace, which like all cooperatives, is owned by the members it serves. In this case, the approximately 4,200 stores the company supplies, each own a piece of the Ace cooperative. But this new deal flips the equation and marks the first time Ace has owned outright a chain of hardware stores. It will be interesting to see if that strategy continues for Ace, and whether it starts buying out more

So it turns out the world didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end Friday. But the absence of an apocalyptic cataclysm didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop Lawrence residents from observing the end of an era. Numerous bars, including the Jazzhaus and Replay Lounge, hosted end-of-theworld-themed bashes Friday. House parties were also thrown. For some, the supposed end of times served as merely a reason to drink. For others, like the crowd that gathered at the Lawrence Percolator, 913 Rhode Island St., it was

a time of reflection. With the new exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Baggage Showâ&#x20AC;? that opened Friday night, organizers wanted to let people deposit the worries of the past and contemplate what they wanted to carry with them to the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way of going into the future,â&#x20AC;? exhibit

organizer Laura Ramberg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new age â&#x20AC;&#x201D; come on get with it.â&#x20AC;? Local artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; representations of their baggage adorned the walls. Event-goers were encouraged to write down the worries they wished to leave behind onto cards to be burned either in a bonfire out-

side or in a 6-foot-long cardboard Viking boat when the exhibit ends Jan. 20. Ramberg said that the exhibit and celebration were not about the end of times but of the beginning of a new era and new year. Eric Farnsworth, who spent 12 hours building the boat, agreed that the event served as a good way of taking stock of oneself at the end of the year. The evening ended with a drum circle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are celebrating being around. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing,â&#x20AC;? Doug McKean, of Lawrence, said with a laugh.

Lawrence police will patrol Topeka Saturday, allowing local police to attend funeral services for two of their officers who were shot to death Sunday. About 30 Lawrence officers will join the Shawnee County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office and the Kansas Highway Patrol in taking over the bereaved departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duties for the day, said Sgt. Trent McKinley of the Lawrence Police Department. Topeka police officers Cpl. David Gogian, 50, and Officer Jeff Atherly, 29, died at a Topeka hospital Sunday night after being wounded in a shooting near a Dillons grocery store. The two officers were responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle at the store when they were shot by 22-year-old David Tiscareno, of Topeka, who was killed in a shootout with police the next day. Many Lawrence police officers have rearranged vacation time in order to substitute for the Topeka department today, while others will attend the services in their off-duty time, McKinley said. To ensure both Topeka and Lawrence are covered, Lawrence detectives and police administrators are stepping in to fill patrol roles. McKinley said Lawrence police are more than happy to support their colleagues in Topeka. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have people who werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in (todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) plan who say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What can I do to help the Topeka Police Department?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Kansas to join other states in tobacco agreement By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

Gov. Sam Brownback and Attorney General Derek Schmidt on Friday said funding to childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs will be protected under a multistate legal agreement to settle disputed payments from several major tobacco companies. In a news release, Brownback and Schmidt said the agreement in principle will reduce the risk of losing tens of millions of dollars. Payments to Kansas from the original 1998 Big Tobacco legal settlement have been approxiPlease see TOWN, page 4A mately $55 million per year.

As part of that national agreement, Big Tobacco agreed to pay out billions of dollars to states to offset the health costs of smoking, but the cigarette com- Brownback panies disputed some payments to 17 states, including Kansas.

Kansas Chamber to seek debate over pensions By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The influential Kansas Chamber of Commerce plans to push legislators next year to reopen a debate over public pensions and start a 401(k)style plan for new teachers and government workers. Two chamber officials told The Associated Press on Friday that a further overhaul of the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System is on the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislative agenda because they believe the current system is going to become increasingly expensive for the state to maintain. The chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to control state spending so Kansas can eventually eliminate its individual and corporate income taxes. The chamber plans to formally release its agenda next month, but Kent Eckles, its vice president of governmental affairs, and Eric Stafford, its senior legislative affairs director, provided details in a joint interview. The Legislature convenes its 2013 session Jan. 14, and conservative Republicans will have majorities in both chambers, in large part because of efforts by the Chamber of Commerceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political action committee to elect conservatives. Legislators approved measures earlier this year and last year to deal with the pension systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-term funding gap, now projected at $9.2 billion through 2033. For teachers and government workers hired after 2014, the state is moving away from traditional plans that guarantee benefits up front, based on years of service and salary, but not fully toward a 401(k)-style plan,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

For the first time, our board wanted to tackle that issue, because they recognize itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big cost driver. It puts pressure on the state to fund it and to raise taxes.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kent Eckles, the Kansas Chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vice president of governmental affairs where benefits are tied to investment earnings by the pension system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really get that done last year,â&#x20AC;? Eckles said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the first time, our board wanted to tackle that issue, because they recognize itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big cost driver. It puts pressure on the state to fund it and to raise taxes.â&#x20AC;? Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is open to the debate. Spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag described this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislation as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant step in the right directionâ&#x20AC;? but noted the long-term funding gap. She said the governor will work with legislators and others to keep promises to workers while â&#x20AC;&#x153;putting the system on a more sustainable path moving forward.â&#x20AC;? The chamber expects to have a broad legislative agenda that includes tax and spending issues, as well as preventing public sector unions from using funds automatically deducted from workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; paychecks for political activities. The chamber supported massive income tax cuts enacted earlier this year, and it will encourage legislators to keep moving the state toward eliminating income taxes.

But any push toward a state 401(k)-style pension plan is certain to meet fierce resistance from public employee groups, as it did during the past two years. Critics of 401(k)-style plans say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll result in less generous retirement benefits and force the state to support a new plan while still closing the old long-term funding gap. About 155,000 teachers and government employees are active KPERS members, and the pension system provides benefits to about 81,000 retirees. Rep. Ed Trimmer of Winfield, the ranking Democrat on the House pensions committee, said the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refusal over decades to put enough money into KPERS caused the long-term funding gap. A measure adopted last year committed the state to increasing its contributions, and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislation dedicated profits from state-owned casinos to KPERS. Trimmer said he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprised the Kansas Chamber wanted to reopen the pensions debate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this move was planned,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a group that promoted the 401(k)-style plan (this year) knew that probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get through the Senate.â&#x20AC;? Democrats and moderate GOP leaders in the Senate have stalled efforts to start a 401(k)-style plan, but conservatives ousted eight moderate Republican senators in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elections, including Senate President Steve Morris of Hugoton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now with a new Senate, maybe we can move a little bit further,â&#x20AC;? Eckles said.

Among the factors the study considers is how many retirees currently are living in a community. It does that by looking at the total percentage of the population that is 65 or older. Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s percentage is always going to be lower than a non-college community. The study also looks at the median age of a communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents, I guess with the thought that retirees will want to be around other retirees. Again, a college community wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fare well in that category. But there was one category where Lawrence did fare well: The percentage of retirees who were born out of state. I think this category is meant to measure how attractive a community is to retirees, with the assumption that people who were born elsewhere are making a conscious decision to retiree in the community. Out of the 153 Midwest cities that were studied, Lawrence had the 9th highest percentage in this category â&#x20AC;&#x201D; although Wichita and Kansas City actually ranked 8th and 3rd, respectively. Maybe the folks at The Business Journals are on to something. Maybe university communities arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t well-suited to be

campuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be real interesting with all those new legislators,â&#x20AC;? he said. When the 2013 session starts Jan. 14, there will be 50 members in the 125-member House who have never served there before. State Sen.-elect Forrest Knox, R-Altoona, has said he will push for a bill that would allow concealedcarry permit holders to take their weapons into public buildings. Knox, who was a House member in the 2012 session, got a similar bill passed in the House last session, but it included a provision that would have allowed universities and hospitals to exempt themselves. He said he would re-introduce his bill in the Senate in the same form it was when it left the House. But it could always been amended again. Knox has argued that preventing law-abiding concealed-carry permitholders from bringing their weapons into public buildings is an invitation to criminals. In an email from last month, Knox said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can trust the average Kansan to carry a deadly weapon. It is not the weapon that is evil, it is criminals that misuse the weapon.â&#x20AC;? Knox has not responded to a recent email seeking comment following last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deadly rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., where a gunman killed 20 students and six staff members. Higher education officials have said increasing the number of guns on campuses would produce greater risk and confusion in the event of an emergency situation. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

retirement communities, but several are trying to do so. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re betting that the cultural and entertainment events that come with a university â&#x20AC;&#x201D; plus the fond memories of youth created by a university â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will make college communities a magnet for the soon-toretire baby boomer generation. Lawrence is set to find out over the next few years. Anyway, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the list of Kansas communities and their ranking in the study of 153 Midwestern cities:

An emergency warning siren sounded a false alarm Friday morning in northern Lawrence. The siren, near 1658 East 1550 Road, sounded for one to three minutes shortly before 8 a.m. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet clear why that one, alone among the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 39 warning sirens, went off Friday, said Jillian Rodrigue, assistant director of Douglas County Emergency Management.

some of the 18 hospitals in seven states where he previously worked. Maryland health officials announced four new cases on Friday, all involving patients at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, where Kwiatkowski worked from July 2009 to January 2010. The previously reported cases include one from the Baltimore VA Medical Center and six from Hays Medical Center in Kansas. Another case has been confirmed at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pennsylvania, a hospital spokeswoman told The Associated Press this week. Over the years, Kwiatkowski was fired twice over allegations of drug use and theft, including from UPMC, where he was just a few weeks into his temporary stint when a co-worker accused him of swiping a fentanyl syringe from an operating room and sticking it down his pants.

Citing a lack of evidence, hospital authorities didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call police, and neither the hospital nor the medical staffing agency that placed him in the job informed the national accreditation organization for radiological technicians. In Maryland, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said Friday that no drug diversion allegations involving Kwiatkowski were reported to the agency during his time there, but the five linked cases adds to the concern that such activity took place. The department expects to release a report early next year on potential vulnerabilities and steps to prevent future outbreaks. Kwiatkowski was sent to Johns Hopkins by a staffing agency that assured the hospital it had followed a vigorous vetting process, hospital spokeswoman Kim Hoppe said.

NRA calls for armed police officer in every school By Nedra Pickler and Philip Elliott

Kansas groups knock NRA response

Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Guns and police officers in all American schools are whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed to stop the next killer â&#x20AC;&#x153;waiting in the wings,â&#x20AC;? the National Rifle Association declared Friday, taking a no-retreat stance in the face of growing calls for gun control after the Connecticut shootings that claimed the lives of 26 children and school staff, as well as the gunmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,â&#x20AC;? said Wayne LaPierre, the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief executive officer. Some members of Congress who had long scoffed at gun-control proposals have begun to suggest some concessions could be made, and a fierce debate over leg-

President Barack Obama has demanded â&#x20AC;&#x153;real action, right now.â&#x20AC;? The nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest gun-rights lobby broke its weeklong silence on the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School with a defiant presentation. The event was billed as a news conference, but NRA

TOPEKA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two Kansas education groups are criticizing the National Rifle Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call to put an armed security officer in every school in the U.S. in the wake of last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary. Even a state legislator known as a gun rights proponent had some doubts Friday about the NRAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea. Kansas teachers union lobbyist Mark Desetti said the NRAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal leaders took no questions. Twice, they were interrupted by banner-waving protesters, who were removed by security. Some had predicted that after the slaughter of a score of elementary schoolchildren by a man using a semi-automatic ri-

would turn schools into armed fortresses. Kansas Association of School Boards official Mark Tallman said the move could prove expensive. Republican state Rep. Forrest Knox, of Altoona, agreed that someone with a firearm would help stop and prevent mass shootings. But he said a killer would likely try to take out an officer first. The Kansas State Rifle Association said it fully supports the NRA proposal. fle, the group might soften its stance, at least slightly. Instead, LaPierre delivered a 25-minute tirade against the notion that another gun law would stop killings in a culture where children are exposed daily to violence in video games, movies and music videos. He argued

that guns are the solution, not the problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before Congress reconvenes, before we engage in any lengthy debate over legislation, regulation or anything else; as soon as our kids return to school after the holiday break, we need to have every single school in America immediately deploy a protection program proven to work,â&#x20AC;? LaPierre said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And by that I mean armed security.â&#x20AC;? He said Congress should immediately appropriate funds to post an armed police officer in every school. Meanwhile, he said the NRA would develop a school emergency response program that would include volunteers from the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4.3 million members to help guard children. His armed-officers idea was immediately lambasted by gun control advocates, and not even the

NRAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point man on the effort seemed willing to go so far. Former Republican Rep. Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, whom LaPierre named national director of the program, said in an interview that decisions about armed guards in schools should be made by local districts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think everyone recognizes that an armed presence in schools is sometimes appropriate,â&#x20AC;? Hutchinson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is one option. I would never want to have a mandatory requirement for every school district to have that.â&#x20AC;? He also noted that some states would have to change their laws to allow armed guards at schools. Hutchinson said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll offer a plan in January that will consider other measures such as biometric entry points, patrols and consideration of school layouts to protect security.

A week after massacre in Connecticut, new details emerge By Katie Zezima Associated Press

NEWTOWN, CONN. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As the nation paused to mark a week since the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, new details emerged Friday about the gunman, Adam Lanza, who acquaintances said was able to take apart and reassemble a computer in a matter of minutes but rarely spoke to anyone. In high school, Lanza used to slither through the hallways, awkwardly pressing himself against the wall while wearing the same green shirt and khaki pants every day. He hardly ever talked to classmates and once gave a presentation entirely by computer, never uttering a single word. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as I knew him, he never really spoke,â&#x20AC;? said Daniel Frost, who

took a computer class with Lanza and remembered his skill with electronics. Lanza seemed to spend most of his time in his own large space in the basement of the home he shared with his mother â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the same basement where she kept a collection of guns, said Russell Ford, a friend of Nancy Lanzaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who had done chimney and pipe work on the house. A week ago, Lanza fatally shot his mother before blasting his way into the school, killing 20 children and six teachers with a military style rifle. As police approached, he used a handgun to commit suicide. Multiple funerals and visitations were held Friday as the community and the nation continued to mourn the lives lost at

Ford did not know if Lanza brought her son shooting. During the past year and a half, Ford said, Nancy Lanza had told him that she planned to move out West and enroll Adam in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;school or a center.â&#x20AC;? The plan started unfolding after Adam turned 18. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be dwelling with her,â&#x20AC;? said Ford, who remembered that Adam Lanza never spoke to him or even made eye contact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She knew she needed to be near him,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was trying to do what was positive for him.â&#x20AC;? Ford said Nancy Lanza didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t elaborate on what type of services she wanted her son to receive. He hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen her in about a month and a half, and said she made fewer appearances at the restaurant in recent months.

dent Barack Obama issued a stern summons to lawmakers Friday to pass legislation to prevent year-end fiscal cliff tax increases on millions and avoid an imminent expiration of benefits for the long-term unemployed. Republican House Speaker John Boehner said Obama himself must give more ground to reach an agreement. He added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How we get there, God only knows.â&#x20AC;? Congress was shutting down, and Obama was headed to Hawaii to join his family for the holidays. But both men indicated theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be Boehner back working to beat the fastapproaching Jan. 1 deadline with an agreement between Christmas Reid and New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. One day after House anti-tax rebels torpedoed Boehnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plan Bâ&#x20AC;? legislation because it would raise rates on million-dollar-earners, Obama said he still wants a bill that requires the well-to-do to pay more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to give a little bit in a sensible wayâ&#x20AC;? to prevent the economy from pitching over a recessionthreatening fiscal cliff, he said. He spoke after talking by phone with Boehner,

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama architect of the failed House bill, and meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Boehnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office quickly issued a statement saying the Ohio Republican intends to return to the Capitol after Christmas â&#x20AC;&#x153;ready to find a solution that can pass both houses of Congress.â&#x20AC;? At the same time, spokesman Brendan Buck said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we remain hopeful he (Obama) is finally ready to get serious about averting the fiscal cliff.â&#x20AC;? At the White House, Obama projected optimism as he struggled to deal with the wreckage of weeks of failed negotiations and political maneuvering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So call me a hopeless optimist, but I actually still think we can get it done,â&#x20AC;? he said of an elusive deal. The president spoke at the end of a day in which stocks tumbled and congressional leaders squabbled as the fiscal cliff drew implacably closer. Boehner spoke in the morning, describing the increasingly tangled attempts to beat the Jan. 1 deadline and head off the perilous combination of across-the-board tax hikes and deep spending cuts. Obama spoke shortly before a scheduled departure to join his family in Hawaii for Christmas, but in an indication of the importance of the issue, he told reporters he would be returning to the White House next week.

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama on Friday nominated Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, one of Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most respected voices on foreign policy, as his next secretary of state. The move is the first in an expected overhaul of Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national security team heading into his second term. As the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top diplomat, Kerry will not only be tasked with executing the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foreign policy objectives, but will also have a hand in shaping them. The longtime lawmaker has been in lockstep with Obama on issues like nuclear nonproliferation, but ahead of the White House in advocating aggressive policies in Libya, Egypt and elsewhere that the president later embraced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training,â&#x20AC;? Obama said, standing alongside Kerry in a Roosevelt Room ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Few individuals know as many presidents and prime ministers or grasp our foreign policies as firmly as John Kerry.â&#x20AC;? He is expected to win confirmation easily in the Senate, where he has served

Congress sent President Barack Obama a $633 billion defense bill for next year that would tighten penalties on Iran to thwart its nuclear ambitions and bulk up security at diplomatic missions worldwide after the deadly Sept. 11 raid in Libya. The Senate voted 81-14 on Friday for the massive policy measure that covers the cost of ships, aircraft, weapons and military personnel. The vote came less than 24 hours after the House passed the bill, 315-107.

Signs suggest better economy if budget deal is reached By Martin Crutsinger Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fresh signs of a strengthening U.S. economy on Friday suggested that if Congress and the White House can avert the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fiscal cliff,â&#x20AC;? the economic recovery might finally accelerate in 2013. Consumers spent and earned more in November. And for a second straight month, U.S. companies increased their orders for a category of manufactured goods that reflects investment plans. In light of the latest figures, some analysts said the economy could end up growing faster in the current October-December quarter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and next year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; than they previously thought. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see momentum building,â&#x20AC;? said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economic Advisors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Washington makes the moves it needs to make, then the economy should pick up speed next year.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big â&#x20AC;&#x153;if.â&#x20AC;? House Republicans called off a vote on tax rates and left budget talks in disarray 10 days before the package of tax increases and spending cuts known as the fis-

since 1985, the last six years as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. Kerry would take the helm at the State Department from Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has long planned to leave the administration early next year. Clinton is recovering from a concussion sustained in a fall and did not attend the White House event. In a statement, Clinton said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;John Kerry has been tested â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in war, in government, and in diplomacy. Time and again, he has proven his mettle.â&#x20AC;? Obama settled on Kerry for the job even though it

could cause a political problem for Democrats in Massachusetts. Kerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to State would open the Senate seat he has held for five terms, giving Republicans an opportunity to take advantage. Recently defeated GOP Sen. Scott Brown would be his partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear favorite in a special election. Kerry would join a national security team in flux, with Obama expected to choose a new defense secretary and director of the Central Intelligence Agency in the coming weeks. The 69-year-old Kerry already has deep relationships with many world leaders,

The president has called upon Kerry in particular to diffuse diplomatic disputes in Afghanistan and Pakistan, two countries that will be at the forefront of Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foreign policy agenda early in his second term.

cal cliff would take effect. Still, helping lift the optimism of some analysts was a government report that consumer spending, which fuels about 70 percent of the economy, rose 0.4 percent in November compared with October. Spending had dipped 0.1 percent in October. But that decline was linked in part to disruptions from Superstorm Sandy. Incomes rose 0.6 percent in November, the biggest gain in 11 months. It reflected a rebound in wages and salaries, which had been depressed in October. Damage from Sandy in the Northeast prevented some people from working at the end of October and reduced wages at an annual rate of $18 billion. A separate report Friday showed that a category of durable-goods orders that tracks business investment surged 2.7 percent. That gain followed an upwardly revised 3.2 percent jump in October, the biggest in 10 months. The back-to-back increases followed a period of weakness in so-called core capital goods that had raised concerns about business investment, a driving force in the economy.

including $63,000 in credit card debt and worsening bankruptcy proceedings, court documents say. And a friend of Mark Leonardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s told investigators Leonard said he had â&#x20AC;&#x153;lost a ton of moneyâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about $10,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at a casino some three weeks before the explosion. Investigators believe the trio had actually tried but failed to blow up Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home the weekend before the successful timed explosion, according to Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry. The fiery blast destroyed five homes, including Shir-

leyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and caused widespread damage to dozens of others in the Richmond Hill subdivision in the far south side of the city. Curry called the explosion a â&#x20AC;&#x153;thoroughly senseless actâ&#x20AC;? that killed Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next-door neighbors. He said the victims, John Dion Longworth, a 34-yearold electronics expert, and his 36-year-old wife, second-grade teacher Jennifer Longworth, were â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the prime of their lives.â&#x20AC;? Randall Cable, the attorney for Shirley and Mark Leonard, said he was stunned by their arrest.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just as surprised as everyone else that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made an arrest. My clients have consistently indicated their innocence,â&#x20AC;? he said. Shirley and the Leonard brothers face two counts of murder as well as 33 counts of arson â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one count for each of the homes damaged so badly that officials have ordered their demolition. Curry said his office would review whether to pursue the death penalty or life in prison without parole against the three, who are scheduled to appear in court Monday.

For a month, Egypt has been torn between Islamists and their opponents, who accuse President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood of trying to unilaterally impose their will on the country. Meanwhile, Morsi was already gearing up for the next steps after the constitutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passage, making a last-minute appointment of 90 new members to the parliamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upper house, a third of its total membership.

Friday put the brakes on a first-of-its-kind California law that bans therapy aimed at turning gay minors straight. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued an emergency order putting the law on hold until the court COURTS can hear full arguments on the measureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitutionality. The law was set to take effect Jan. 1. Licensed counselors who practice so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;reparative therapyâ&#x20AC;? and two families who say their teenage sons have benefited from it sought the injunction after a lower court judge refused the request.

Center support To the editor: I support the proposed athletics facility. As someone who has had rent to basketball facilities for the past 20 years, I want to voice my support for the new athletics facility proposed by the city and Kansas University. It is difficult to find available gyms on a regular basis. The demand for gym space in Lawrence has outgrown the availability. This will be an investment in the future of our community. Congratulations to the City Commission for their vision. Stanley Rasmussen, Lawrence

Guns, alcohol To the editor: According to the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institute of Health, alcohol kills more people than guns do: 75,000 deaths per year — including 5,000 underage children. Obviously, existing laws don’t stop the carnage or keep alcohol away from children. It’s time to get serious. We must ban hard liquor and limit beer and wine to packages not exceeding a three-drink total. We need mandatory background checks and 10-day waiting periods for every alcohol purchase. Also, alcohol stored in the home must be kept in locked cabinets to prevent unauthorized access. Ballistophobic boozers will fuss, with predictable hypocrisy and double-standards: “It’s already illegal for minors to purchase alcohol.” It’s already illegal for minors to purchase firearms. “Drunk driving is already illegal.” Shooting people is already illegal. “Alcohol doesn’t kill people. Alcohol abuse kills people.” Guns don’t kill people, murder kills people. “You don’t need guns.” You don’t need alcohol, I hope. If you do, please seek help. “Why do you need semiautomatics and large-capacity clips?” Why do you need hard liquor and cases of beer? “Guns are made to kill.” Alcohol is toxic, made to intoxicate. “Most drinkers obey the law and never harm anyone.” Most gun owners obey the law and never harm anyone. “Tell the parents of 20 murdered children how your constitutional right to bear arms trumps their kids’ lives.” Tell the parents of 5,000 boozekilled kids how your selfish need for convenient drinking trumps their kids’ lives. Then wipe the blood off your bottles and shut up about my guns. David Reber, Lawrence

Poor choice To the editor: Wednesday, I open up my print edition of this news rag and in huge block letters the term “Extermination” in reference to the basketball game last night! Just what are you fools thinking? With the recent events at the school in Connecticut, you use this disgusting, inappropriate and hateful term to announce a basketball game victory over yet another cream puff basketball team. You people need to get a grip and learn some restraint, respect and regard for current events that have so terribly shaken the nation with your low-class reporting of a non-essential ball game. Fred Whitehead, Lawrence

A lost treasure To the editor: Downtown Lawrence is turning into a Potterville of bars and restaurants. There was a time when there were enough retail shops on Mass. Street that I could spend hours doing my Christmas shopping. Today I was done in about 45 minutes. Thanks Walmart. Thanks, too, to a City Commission that has rolled over to developers and allowed unbridled retail expansion on the outskirts of town. We have lost a treasure all for the sake of cut rate, lowquality foreign goods. David Bishop, Lawrence

Public safety requires some trade-offs WASHINGTON — Every mass shooting has three elements: the killer, the weapon and the cultural climate. As soon as the shooting stops, partisans immediately pick their preferred root cause with corresponding pet panacea. Names are hurled, scapegoats paraded, prejudices vented. The argument goes nowhere. Let’s be serious: 1. The Weapon Within hours of last week’s Newtown, Conn., massacre, the focus was the weapon and the demand was for new gun laws. Several prominent pro-gun Democrats remorsefully professed new openness to gun control. Sen. Dianne Feinstein is introducing a new assault weapons ban. And the president emphasized guns and ammo above all else in announcing the creation of a new task force. I have no problem in principle with gun control. Congress enacted (and I supported) an assault weapons ban in 1994. The problem was: It didn’t work. (So concluded a University of Pennsylvania study commissioned by the Justice Department.) The reason is simple. Unless you are prepared to confiscate all existing firearms, disarm the citizenry and repeal the Second Amendment, it’s almost impossible to craft a law that will be effective. Feinstein’s law, for example, would exempt 900 weapons. And that’s the least of the loopholes. Even the guns that are banned can be made legal with simple, minor modifications.

Charles Krauthammer letters@charleskrauthammer.com

If we’re serious about curtailing future Columbines and Newtowns, everything — guns, commitment, culture — must be on the table.”

Most fatal, however, is the grandfathering of existing weapons and magazines. That’s one of the reasons the ’94 law failed. At the time, there were 1.5 million assault weapons in circulation and 25 million large-capacity (i.e., more than 10 bullets) magazines. A reservoir that immense can take 100 years to draw down. 2. The Killer Monsters shall always be with us, but in earlier days they did not roam free. As a psychiatrist in Massachusetts in the 1970s, I committed people — often right out of the emergency room — as a danger to themselves or to others. I never did so lightly, but I labored under none of the crushing bureaucratic and legal constraints that make in-

voluntary commitment infinitely more difficult today. Why do you think we have so many homeless? Destitution? Poverty has declined since the 1950s. The majority of those sleeping on grates are mentally ill. In the name of civil liberties, we let them die with their rights on. A tiny percentage of the mentally ill become mass killers. Just about everyone around Tucson shooter Jared Loughner sensed he was mentally ill and dangerous. But in effect, he had to kill before he could be put away — and (forcibly) treated. Random mass killings were three times more common in the 2000s than in the 1980s, when gun laws were actually weaker. Yet a 2011 University of California at Berkeley study found that states with strong civil commitment laws have about a onethird lower homicide rate. 3. The Culture We live in an entertainment culture soaked in graphic, often sadistic, violence. Older folks find themselves stunned by what a desensitized youth finds routine, often amusing. It’s not just movies. Young men sit for hours pulling video-game triggers, mowing down human beings en masse without pain or consequence. And we profess shock when a small cadre of unstable, deeply deranged, dangerously isolated young men go out and enact the overlearned narrative. If we’re serious about curtailing future Columbines and New-

towns, everything — guns, commitment, culture — must be on the table. It’s not hard for President Obama to call out the NRA. But will he call out the ACLU? And will he call out his Hollywood friends? The irony is that over the last 30 years, the U.S. homicide rate has declined by 50 percent. Gun murders as well. We’re living not through an epidemic of gun violence but through a historic decline. Except for these unfathomable mass murders. But these are infinitely more difficult to prevent. While law deters the rational, it has far less effect on the psychotic. The best we can do is to try to detain them, disarm them and discourage “entertainment” that can intensify already murderous impulses. But there’s a cost. Gun control impinges upon the Second Amendment; involuntary commitment impinges upon the liberty clause of the Fifth Amendment; curbing “entertainment” violence impinges upon First Amendment free speech. That’s a lot of impingement, a lot of amendments. But there’s no free lunch. Increasing public safety almost always means restricting liberties. We made that trade after 9/11. We make it every time the TSA invades your body at an airport. How much are we prepared to trade away after Newtown? — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

By Leonard Krishtalka

This is being written on Dec. 17, 2012. If the world comes to an end on Dec. 21, as followers of the Mayan calendar choose to believe, you will not read this op-ed piece in the Lawrence Journal-World. But the chances are surefire that you will. Why? Because being archaic does not mean being all-knowing. This belief — that mere antiquity imparts magical powers of prognostication, or access to the supernatural — underlies worship of fashionable archaeological objects such as the Mayan calendar, or the Caveman Diet, or the writings of Nostradamus, or Biblical numerology. And this belief is widespread — a worldwide poll determined that 1 in 10 people are terrified of doomsday striking on Dec. 21. So much for common sense, critical thinking and a healthy dose of deja vu. In March, 2011 Harold Camping captured the news media and panicked believers with his predictions of Jesus’ second coming on May 21, 2011, and the end of the world six months later on Oct. 21. It was the second time his calculus of Biblical end times didn’t add up. He had previously predicted Judgment Day for Sept. 6, 1994. If writings are primeval, it makes them … well … primeval, not prophetic. Same with Nostradamus. All one can say about his medieval prophecies is that, dating to 1555, they are medieval, written in quatrains, or four lines of verse, and no more prophetic about the modern world than is the crystalpeering into the past by other self-proclaimed oracles and doomsters. Followers of the Caveman Diet, aka the Paleo-

lithic Diet, believe that Neanderthals and other ancestors ate healthier and smarter during the Paleolithic Era, an archaeological period prior to 10,000 years ago. Hence the caveman diet — red meat, nuts, b e r ries and seeds, no salt, sugar, potatoes or other carbs, a n d Krishtalka long periods of intermittent fasting. Hmmm. When Neandertals were lucky, they got to eat mammoth or aurochs (an extinct bison relative) or wild boar or reindeer, none of which are available in today’s supermarkets. When they were unlucky, which was most of the time, Neanderthals got to eat worms, tubers, leaves and each other — and fast for long periods of time. Neanderthals and their diet had a life expectancy of be-

tween 15 and 30 years of age. None lived beyond 30. And, most obviously, they became extinct. Scholarly studies of the Mayan system of shortand long-cycle calendars tell us a good deal about Mayan culture, their math and astronomy — how they counted the days and years and how they perceived the march of the Earth amid the celestial bodies. But, the human future does not rest on whether Mayans calculated their calendar to mark the end of times or the end of a cycle-of-time on Dec. 21. The Mayan calendar isn’t about our stocking the survival shelter with beans and rice and other foods that Neandertals never got to eat. It’s about understanding the Mayan sense of fates, not the fate of the world. Divining the future is hard work. It takes more than old parchment or ancient hieroglyphics or the alleged decoding of the

claimed words of an antediluvian deity. For political predictions, it takes a keen chronicler of history and political behavior, such as George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian vision of totalitarian tyranny, “1984,” or Francisco Goya’s 1797 print “The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters.” For technological futures, it takes a creative mind for imagining science fiction evolving into science, as did Jules Verne, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov and other artists. And for environmental forecasts, it takes poets such as Robert Frost to tell us the world will end in fire or ice, and climate scientists to use terabytes of data, complex mathematical models, ferocious computational power, and intricate knowledge of the planet’s natural systems to tell us how the poetic warning will proceed and how to turn its rhyme into reason and resolution. — Leonard Krishtalka is a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Kansas University.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for YEARS Dec. 22, 1912: AGO “The first step IN 1912 of the University towards a new athletic field and stadium was consummated recently when the University secured an option on the Gowans tract of 19 1/2 acres immediately adjoining Robinson Gymnasium on the south. The price named in the option is $29,000. The money needed for the new tract is included in the budget just submitted to the State Auditor under the caption of Campus Extension. The land is practically level, beginning just at the foot of the abrupt hill back of the Gym and extending some little distance to the south. At present the University has the tract leased and it is used as a soccer field.... About a year ago elaborate plans were prepared by two Seniors in the School of Engineering under the direction of Dr. James Naismith, head of the Department of Physical Education, which if carried out will give Kansas athletic fields and a stadium taking the front rank in the West. The plans called for a huge concrete stadium erected on the side hill which forms a natural amphitheater. The stadium will surround the main gridiron and diamond, around which there will be a quarter mile cinder path. Outside the stadium proper provision is made for several additional gridirons, for the Scrubs, Freshmen and class teams, extra diamonds, tennis courts, outdoor handball courts, sprints and places for all kinds of outdoor sports. McCook Field, the present athletic field, is a long ways from the Gymnasium and training shanties for the athletes are maintained there.”

DURING THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER, SIXTH-GRADE STUDENTS at Bishop Seabury Academy participated in National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. With a goal to write a novel in 30 days, these 17 students put pencil to paper (or fingers to keyboards) and wrote more than 150,000 words. Their cast of characters includes a high school football player dealing with racism, possibly the world’s snobbiest girl, a rat and a homeopathic exterminator, a girl trapped in her imagination, a young woman reflecting on a friend’s death and evil flying eyeballs. Krista Barbour, sixth-grade English teacher, submitted the photo. Email your photos to friends@ljworld.com or mail them to Friends & Neighbors, P.O. Box 888, Lawrence, KS 66044.

Jayhawks brace for revenge-minded Buckeyes By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Revenge figures to be on the minds of Ohio State’s basketball players, coaches and fans entering today’s 3 p.m. nonconference clash against Kansas University in 19,049seat Value City Arena. Remember, the Jayhawks (9-1) of the Big 12 Conference, knocked off the Buckeyes (9-1) of the Big Ten

twice a year ago — 78-67 on Dec. 10, 2011, in Allen Fieldhouse, and, more importantly, 64-62, in a Final Four semifinal on March 31 in New Orleans. “I’m sure they’ll be ready,” said KU coach Bill Self, whose Jayhawks enter as the No. 9-ranked team in the country; OSU is No. 7. “I don’t know if our fans remember how ready we were playing Georgia Tech after they knocked us out of the

FSHS boys playing catch-up

Final Four. It’s going to be a fabulous atmosphere.” KU fans should have no trouble recalling one of the wildest home games in the Self era — a 70-68 overtime victory over Georgia Tech’s Yellow Jackets on Jan. 1, 2005. It was a game that avenged a 79-71 Elite Eight loss to Tech in 2003-04, Self’s first season at KU. “You put yourself in games like this to find out more about your team,” Self

said. “Other than Michigan State, we have not had a close game.” The Jayhawks fell to the Spartans of the Big Ten, 6764, on Nov. 13 on a neutral Georgia Dome floor in Atlanta. “We’ve not had to make plays in the last three to four minutes to determine the outcome of the game,” Self said. KU has won eight straight games, with only the Oregon

State game (84-78, Nov. 30) a single-figure victory margin. Kansas has won its last three games — over Colorado, Belmont and Richmond — by 36, 29 and 28 points, respectively. “It will be good for us to see how tight our huddle is, see if we can focus, spend energy in the building in our favor and find out how tough we are. I’m looking forward to it,” Self said.

Bear-ly better California runs past Jayhawks

By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Free State High’s boys basketball team plans on using the winter break to make up for lost time. The Firebirds’ progress was delayed in the preseason when the FSHS football team made its run to the Class 6A state semifinals. While other basketball programs had nearly two weeks of practices completed entering the final days of November, Free State was just getting started as a complete unit, because key members of its rotation doubled as football standouts in the fall, thus making them late to the party. Juniors Khadre Lane, Keith Loneker and Blake Winslow, as well as senior Kyle McFarland, all have taken on key roles for coach Chuck Law’s basketball team after helping the football team go 10-2. Senior Chris Heller and sophomores Scott Frantz and Justin Narcomey — also members of the football team — weren’t available to contribute to the basketball program, either. Law and his players haven’t used the late football additions as an excuse for the team’s 2-3 start to the season, but there is no doubt they have some catching up to do. The coach said in the few practices the entire team had together prior to its Dec. 4 opener, it behooved all involved to cram in as many big-picture things as they could. Some of the typical skill work, nuances of sets and other subtleties took a back seat to more broad concepts. Everything that was skipped over early is being addressed now, with the holidays bringing a break in the schedule until Jan. 4, when the Firebirds begin Sunflower League play at Olathe East. “Once they see some of it, things will start to make more sense,” Law said of upcoming practices, “and we can shoot it more and get more skill work in practice. We’ll be a better team.” Free State has some new

KANSAS’ ANGEL GOODRICH, CENTER, DRIVES between California’s Afure Jemerigbe, left, and Brittany Boyd in the first half. KU fell to Cal, 88-79, on Friday in Berkeley, Calif.

BERKELEY, CALIF. — Layshia Clarendon scored a seasonhigh 28 points, one of five California players in double figures, and the eighth-ranked Golden Bears beat No. 19 Kansas, 88-79, on Friday night. Gennifer Brandon added 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Golden Bears (91), who matched the best start in school history. Talia Caldwell made all five of her shots and had 12 points. Reshanda Gray added 13, and Afure Jemerigbe scored 10. Angel Goodrich had 21 points to lead the Jayhawks (9-2), who were playing their third road game. Carolyn Davis added 16 points, Natalie Knight had 13 and Chelsea Gardner 12. Brittany Boyd sank a layup in the final seconds of the first half, giving Cal a 42-35 lead at the break. It was the most points allowed by Kansas in a half this season. The Golden Bears, who have started the same five players in every game, used an 11-0 run to overcome a strong Kansas start and open a seven-point edge. Both teams shot better than 50 percent in the first half. Cal took advantage of its 12 offensive rebounds for a 16-6 advantage in secondchance points. Kansas played its 94th game against a Pac-12 opponent, although 88 have been against former Big 12 rival Colorado. The Jayhawks have played Cal more often than any other Pac-12 foe aside from the Buffaloes. The Jayhawks, who last played the Bears five years ago, fell to 2-19 under coach Bonnie Henrickson against teams ranked in the Top 10. The Jayhawks will break for the holidays, then host Kansas State at 7 p.m. on Jan. 2 at Allen Fieldhouse.

UTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kabongo suspended 23 games INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The NCAA has suspended Texas basketball player Myck Kabongo for 23 games for accepting impermissible benefits and providing false statements during an investigation into the infractions. The Division I committee on student-athlete reinstatement announced the suspension Friday. Kabongo also must re-

pay $475 to a charity of his choice. The NCAA will count all 11 games that Kabongo has missed toward the suspension. Texas had self-imposed a 10-game penalty. The NCAA said Kabongo accepted airfare and personal training instruction and then provided false and misleading information about the infractions during two interviews with university officials.

Yahoo! Sports has reported that the NCAA was examining whether Rich Paul, the agent for LeBron James, was involved in a trip Kabongo took to Cleveland last spring that included at least one workout with professional trainer Jerry Powell. University officials were notified of the decision last week, the NCAA said. An appeal was heard Thursday, and the NCAA decided to overturn the original

decision to suspend Kabongo for the entire season. Kabongo started 34 games for the Longhorns last season, averaging 9.6 points and 5.2 assists, and has been projected as a possible first-round NBA draft pick in 2013. Born in Congo and raised in Toronto, he spent his first three seasons of high school at St. Benedictâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prep School in Newark, N.J., and finished at Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nev.

COMMENTARY

Winthrop coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message sincere

NCAA mulls proposals to change recruiting

By Jim Litke Associated Press Sports Columnist

The game was over, and the postgame interview appeared to be, too, when Winthrop coach Pat Kelsey suddenly decided otherwise. By then, the sting of his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 65-55 loss to Ohio State was already an afterthought. Instead, like a lot of us, he was still heartbroken about the school shootings in Newtown, determined to say something about them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last thing I want to say,â&#x20AC;? Kelsey began, as reporters scrambled to turn their tape recorders back on Tuesday night, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really, really lucky, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to get on an eight-hour bus ride, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to arrive in Rock Hill, South Carolina, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to walk into my house, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to walk upstairs, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to walk into two pink rooms with a 5-year-old and a 4-year-old laying in that pink room, with a bunch of teddy bears laying in that room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to give them the biggest hug and the biggest kiss Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever given them. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20 families in Newtown, Conn., that are walking into a pink room with a bunch of teddy bears with nobody laying in those beds,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tragic.â&#x20AC;? No one in the room knew that was coming, nor the call to action that came next. The only thing that was certain was that Kelseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice grew stronger the longer he went on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know this microphone is powerful right now because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing the (seventh)best team in the country. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to have a microphone like this the rest of the year, maybe the rest of my life. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be an agent of change with the 13 young men I get to coach every day and the two little girls that I get to raise. ... â&#x20AC;&#x153;But,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to change.â&#x20AC;? Kelsey is one of dozens of mid-major coaches hoping for a job at a big school like Ohio State someday, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a parent first. When he played basketball at Cincinnati, Kelsey was a captain and twice voted the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most inspirational player. So maybe the most surprising thing about the past few days is that he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only coach or player to step forward and say what was on his mind. At Syracuse the other night, coach Jim Boeheim also used the last moments of his postgame interview to make certain the next dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t focused solely on his career milestone 900th win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we cannot get the people who represent us to do something about firearms, we are a sad, sad society,â&#x20AC;? Boeheim said Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If one person in this world, the NRA president, anybody, can tell me why we need assault weapons with 30 shots â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this is our fault if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out there and do something about this. If we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get this thing done, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what kind of country we have.â&#x20AC;?

INDIANAPOLIS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The NCAA released a package of proposals Friday that would change the recruiting calendar, lift restrictions on how and how often coaches can contact recruits, and allow athletes to accept more money for participating in non-scholastic events. All the proposals are expected to be voted on Jan. 19 at the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual convention near Dallas. If approved, they could take effect Aug. 1. It was the first detailed glimpse into how the NCAA intends to rewrite its massive rulebook, and Jim Barker, chairman of the NCAA rules committee working on the plan, said the goal is â&#x20AC;&#x153;smarter rules and tougher enforcement.â&#x20AC;? If the package is approved, the overall result would provide coaches with more leeway in recruiting. The hope is that athletes will build more meaningful relationships with their coaches, and they will get more opportunities to showcase their skills in front of college and pro scouts. One key recommendation would create a uniform recruiting calendar for all sports and allow coaches to begin contacting potential recruits after July 1 of their sophomore year, though coaches would still have to abide by the no-contact periods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The rules group believes that the uniform recruiting date will create significant ease of administration on campus, make the rules more understandable and allow for better recruiting decisions from both the coach and prospective student-athlete,â&#x20AC;? said Barker, the Clemson president. Those were the goals NCAA President Mark Emmert outlined more than a year ago when he backed the move to shrink the rulebook following a year of major college scandals that included stripping a national champion of its title, a Heisman Trophy winner giving back his trophy, criminal allegations and the accusation that another Heisman winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father was peddling his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s services. In the wake of so much turmoil, Emmert held a presidential retreat in August 2011 to acknowledge that the governing body needed to focus more on enforcing the rules that go to heart of college sports â&#x20AC;&#x201D; fair play, ethical behavior and tough penalties that dissuade coaches from considering cost-benefit analyses when making decisions about playing by the rules. Some rules, Emmert acknowledged are simply unenforceable or so narrow they consume too much time and effort at the institution level and the NCAA level. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one reason another proposal would allow coaches to reach out to players through any communication mode with no limitation on the number of contacts. College basketball coaches were given that ability in June, and now the working group Barker has led wants to extend those privileges to all sports.

AWARDS

Douglas top female athlete When gymnast Gabby Douglas allowed herself to dream of being an Olympic champion, she imagined having a nice little dinner with family and friends to celebrate. Maybe sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d make an appearance here and there. She says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gotten far crazier than she ever thought it would. And now the teenager who became the first AfricanAmerican gymnast to claim gymnasticsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biggest prize â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Douglas all-around Olympic title â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has a new honor. She is The Associated Pressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 2012 female athlete of the year, edging out swimmer Missy Franklin in a vote by U.S. editors and news directors. She is the fourth gymnast to win the award, and first since Mary Lou Retton in 1984.

BASEBALL

Brewers sign Gorzelanny MILWAUKEE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Milwaukee Brewers signed left-handed reliever Tom Gorzelanny to a twoyear contract Friday. The 30-year-old Gorzelanny, a former Kansas University pitcher, went 4-2 with a 2.88 ERA and one save in 45 games with Washington last season, a stint that included one start. He posted a 1.33 earned-run average in 27 innings pitched out of the bullpen following the All-Star break.

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; NHL players are a step closer to dissolving their union. Union members voted this week to give the playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive board the power to file a â&#x20AC;&#x153;disclaimer of interestâ&#x20AC;? until Jan. 2. A person familiar with the outcome of the vote told The Associated Press on Friday that the measure passed easily, drawing more than two-thirds majority that was necessary. However, the executive board hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made plans yet to meet to discuss whether to file the disclaimer. If the Jan. 2 deadline passes, another authorization vote could be held to approve a filing at a later date.

NOTEBOOK

OSU coach showers KU with praise By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Ohio State University men’s basketball coach Thad Matta lavished praise on Kansas University’s program during a media session Friday in snowy Columbus. “Our guys have great respect for Kansas,” said Matta, whose No. 7-ranked Buckeyes (9-1) take on the No. 9 Jayhawks (9-1) at 3 p.m. Central time today in Value City Arena. “Not only this team, but teams they’ve had the last 100 years.” Of KU center Jeff Withey, Matta said: “There’s not as many great shot blockers as there used to be, and he’s probably the best in college basketball. I don’t think there’s anything you can do. You’ve got awareness of where he is and that sort of thing.

He’ll probably block a couple. You’ve got to keep playing, just keep playing.” Of freshman guard Ben McLemore, Matta noted: “He is a complete player. He appears to be very athletic. He has kind of got everything he needs in terms of being a high-level college basketball player.” And of KU coach Bill Self, Matta said: “He is a guy who just wins. I have the utmost respect for him and the job he’s done over the course of time. He is in an elite crowd in terms of coaches. His assistants have gone on to be head coaches.” O

OSU junior point guard Aaron Craft on today’s match-up: “One of the main things is who is going to be the tougher basketball team. We have to find a way to match or be better than their inten-

sity and toughness. That’s what Kansas basketball is about. It’s what we have to focus in on and try to do.” O

Travel: The Jayhawks flew charter to Columbus and arrived at 6 p.m. Friday after experiencing no problems with snow. O

Young vs. Ohio State: Entering his senior season at Kansas University, Kevin Young was best known for his 14-point, four-rebound outing against Ohio State on Dec. 10, 2011, in Allen Fieldhouse. The 6-foot-8, 190-pounder from Perris, Calif., hit six of eight shots and also played tight defense on Buckeye forward Deshaun Thomas, who scored 19 points off 7-of-14 shooting. “I remember him hitting two threes. It’s what I remember most,” KU senior center Jeff Withey

I can guarantee you that one. I have got some great defenders, and none of them ever get credit for it. I’m campaigning for Aaron right now.” KU’s Elijah Johnson will have to be alert going against Craft, who had just three steals in the two games versus KU last year.

J-W Staff Reports

OLATHE — Veritas Christian ran into a rugged opponent in Olathe Christian on Friday night and suffered a 46-17 high school girls basketball loss. Naomi Hickman led the Eagles with nine points and five rebounds, and Madi Bennett added seven points. Kristen Finger, with one point, was the only other Veritas player to score. The loss dropped the Eagles to 5-2. “We had 19 turnovers in the first and 11 in the second, and that’s pretty much the story of the game,” Veritas coach Kevin Shelton said. “They played at a little bit different speed than we did. We ran into a pretty good team tonight.” Veritas will have an alumni scrimmage on Dec. 29, then will play Topeka Heritage on Jan. 5 in Eudora.

do that. We all feel real comfortable with him in the lineup and I think our starting five is a lot better with him in there.” Of Young’s performance a year ago versus Ohio State in Lawrence, Self said: “He made shots. He stuck a couple threes and was active. He’s a good fit for us.” O

Nice arena: Self, who coached at Illinois for three years, on 19,049seat Value City Arena: “The atmosphere is great. It’s a professional arena. It’ll have 20,000 people in there. It’ll be juiced just like our building is. They’ve got students right behind the bench.” O

The series: KU leads the all-time series 7-3, including two KU wins last season. The Jayhawks have won five straight in the series, which dates to

1965. The Jayhawks won the first two meetings: 8168 on Dec. 23, 1965, in Columbus and 94-70 on Dec. 5, 1966, in Lawrence. The two teams played twice in 1983 to start a three-game OSU-victory run against Kansas. The Buckeyes won 64-61 on Jan. 2, 1983, in Kansas City, Mo., and 79-74 on Dec. 22, 1983, in Columbus. In 1986, OSU edged KU 79-78 in overtime in the Rainbow Classic in Honolulu. The two schools’ next meeting was 1997 in the Rainbow Classic, a 69-56 KU win. Before the KU win in 2000, the Jayhawks defeated the Buckeyes 80-67 on Dec. 16, 1999, in Lawrence. ... Self is 5-3 all-time versus Ohio State. ... KU is 4324 (64.2 percent) against ranked competition in the Self era. In the last six seasons, the Jayhawks are 33-14 (70.2 percent) versus ranked foes.

Kansas vs. Ohio State

KU men KU faces a Buckeye team that has defeated Albany, Rhode Island, Washington, UMKC, Northern Kentucky, Long Beach State, Savannah State, UNC Asheville and Winthrop. Its only loss is a 73-68 decision to Duke on Nov. 28 in Durham, N.C. OSU coach Thad Matta sees this match-up every bit as tough as the one against top-ranked Duke. “I think just from what I’ve seen of Kansas in their last few games ... they are probably playing as well as anybody in the country right now,” Matta said. “They are high-powered, explosive. They are a lot like we want to be. Their defense generates a lot of their offense, and they are very explosive in that regard.” The Buckeyes have two of the best players in the country — one known for offense and one for defense. Deshaun Thomas, a 6-foot-7 junior from Ft. Wayne, Ind., averages a team-leading 20.4 points (45.9 percent shooting, 40.9 percent from three) and 6.9 rebounds a game. Aaron Craft, a 6-2 junior from Findlay, Ohio, averages 9.1 points with 48 assists against just 13 turnovers in 10 games. “Aaron wants to do the right thing from the standpoint (that) each game will be a little bit different, if we need him to shoot more or pass more,” Matta said of

said of Young’s play in the Jayhawks’ 78-67 victory over an Ohio State team playing without the injured Jared Sullinger. Sullinger, who is now in the NBA, did play in KU’s 64-62 Final Four semifinal victory over the Buckeyes. “Kevin can do that almost every night. We saw him do that a couple games ago. He had 16 (points),” Withey added. Young scored 16 points off 8-of-9 shooting in a 90-54 rout of Colorado on Dec. 8 in Allen Fieldhouse. “Kevin will be huge for us because he’ll be guarding their best player (Thomas; Travis Releford likely will guard him as well),” Withey said, referring to a key matchup in today’s game. “We need him to put pressure on the other guy and get him in foul trouble, go hard and be annoying on defense. He can

offensive packages this season, but point guards Loneker and Winslow didn’t get much time for fine-tuning. The team’s chemistry and feel for playing as a unit inevitably took a hit in the season’s opening weeks, too. Junior forward Cole Moreano said he didn’t know whether Free State would have defeated Lansing, Blue Valley North or Lawrence (the three teams that beat FSHS) if the whole team had been intact the entire preseason, because they lost to quality opponents. But Moreano said the Firebirds might have played more cohesively and given themselves a better chance. “We kind of split apart when we get down right now,” Moreano said, “because we’re not used to each other yet.” Lane said the Firebirds can use their break like an offseason, with plenty of time to devote to basketball. Coming in late, he added, might have nega-

“The key is you can’t dance with him. If you are aggressive and get up next to him and you try to back out of it, that’s when he goes after it,” Self said. “Tyshawn had a good handle last year, and Craft picked him twice just by Tyshawn relaxing a couple times and not being aggressive. You’ve got to be in attack mode against him. If he feels you are a sidelineto-sideline dribbler, then I think he is at his best. We’ve got to try to get our shoulders past him, which is very difficult to do,” Self added. Thomas enters as a first-team preseason AP All-American. “We are looking forward to the game. It will be a big

game for us, but we can’t have the start we had for this game,” Thomas told the Columbus Dispatch after Tuesday’s 65-55 home vicProbable Starters tory over Winthrop. OSU led just 31-30 at halftime.

get on track and build chemistry in the coming weeks because it has a talented roster. Caro also thinks the Firebirds will be tougher because of their two-sport athletes. “They have that football mentality,” Caro said. “They bring that physical play.” Law agreed and said FSHS plans to use that to its advantage by doing new things defensively. The coach said his team needs to hang its hat on giving the opposition’s offense fits and creating take-aways that turn into fast-break points. That’s how FSHS held a halftime lead at Lawrence on Dec. 14, despite the Lions’ hitting seven threepointers in the first 16 minutes. “We know we have some limitations in certain areas,” Law said, “but we have some size and some length and athletic ability we haven’t had in a while.” Winter-break practices, Moreano said, could deJohn Young/Journal-World Photo termine how the rest of FREE STATE’S KEITH LONEKER (14) DRIVES past Free State’s season turns Austin Abbott during Lawrence High’s game against out.

Bulls 110, Knicks 106 NEW YORK — New York’s Carmelo Anthony and three others were thrown out of a foul-filled game, and Chicago beat the Knicks for the second time this season on Friday night. Knicks center Tyson Chandler and Bulls counterpart Joakim Noah were tossed after a fourth-quarter altercation, shortly after New York coach Mike Woodson had been ejected following his second technical, drawing a loud ovation from Knicks fans who angrily booed the officiating for much of the second half. Luol Deng had season highs of 29 points and 13 rebounds despite briefly leaving the game because of an injured left shoulder. Marco Belinelli added 22 points as Chicago won for the fourth time in five games. Anthony finished with 29 points on 10-of-25 shooting, ending his streak of four straight 30-point games. The Knicks lost for the second time in three Mary Altaffer/AP Photo home games after winning NEW YORK’S J.R.

76ers 99, Hawks 80 PHILADELPHIA — Thaddeus Young had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Evan Turner scored 21 points to help Philadelphia beat Atlanta. Jason Richardson scored 17 to help the Sixers snap a five-game losing streak. Jrue Holiday had 11 points after missing four games because of a sprained left foot. The 76ers held the Hawks to 39 percent shooting and outrebounded them 45-37.

There is still no timetable for when he can return to play from bone bruises in his knees. Josh Smith led the Hawks with 17 points and Lou Williams scored 13.

Raptors 93, Magic 90 TORONTO — DeMar DeRozan scored 17 points, Jose Calderon had 13 points and nine assists, and Toronto won its fifth straight game. Rookie Terrence Ross scored seven of his 13 points in the fourth quarter while Alan Anderson, Ed Davis and Amir Johnson each had 10 for the Raptors. Aaron Afflalo scored 26 points and Nikola Vucevic

had 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Magic, who lost for the first time in five games. Gustavo Ayon had 12 points and 13 rebounds while E’Twaun Moore added 12. A soaring putback dunk by Ross and a three-point play by DeRozan put Toronto up 78-68 with 9:35 to go. Orlando used a 6-0 run to cut it to 82-76 before Ross struck again, hitting a long three, then stealing the ball from Jameer Nelson at midcourt and racing in for a windmill jam that put the Raptors up 8776 with 5:55 remaining.

Pistons 100, Wizards 68 AUBURN HILLS, MICH. — Greg Monroe had 15 points and nine rebounds and rookie Andre Drummond added a doubledouble, and Detroit ended a six-game losing streak with a rout. The Pistons, who never trailed, got 15 points from Brandon Knight and 11 points and a career-high 14 rebounds from Drummond. Detroit hadn’t beaten anyone other than the Cavaliers since late November. The teams meet again Saturday night in the nation’s capital, but the Wizards will have to play a much better game to have a shot at splitting the home-and-home series.

Pacers 99, Cavaliers 89 CLEVELAND — Roy Hibbert scored 18 points and Lance Stephenson added a season-high 16 to lead Indiana over Cleveland, which lost its sixth straight game. Hibbert didn’t have to deal with injured Cavs center Anderson Varejao, the NBA’s leading rebounder. Varejao missed his second game in a row with a bruised right knee. David West added 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Gerald Green had 14 points — with a ferocious dunk — as the Pacers won for the fifth time in six games. Kyrie Irving scored 17 points on just 5-of-16 shooting for the Cavs, who are 1-11 in their last 12 games. Tristan Thompson had 12 points and 13 rebounds for Cleveland, 3-21 in its past 24.

Bucks 99, Celtics 94, OT BOSTON — Monta Ellis scored five of his 27 points in overtime, and Milwaukee beat Boston in the teams’ final meeting this season despite blowing a seven-point lead late in regulation.

TOP 25 ROUNDUP

No. 6 Indiana rediscovers top-ranked form The Associated Press

No. 6 Indiana 88, Florida Atlantic 52 BLOOMINGTON, IND. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Indiana already had the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top scoring team. With a short break and some extra practice, the Hoosiers are getting even better. Cody Zeller finished with 24 points and six rebounds, Christian Watford added 17 points, and No. 6 Indiana continued its dominant offense in Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rout of Florida Atlantic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing better defense, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing better in transition, I think our defense is the reason we do so well on offense,â&#x20AC;? Victor Oladipo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of weapons, we have the big fellow inside and different players scoring. But when we play defense and we score off turnovers, we play at a high level, we score easy baskets.â&#x20AC;? Whatever the explanation, the Hoosiers (11-1) have been efficient since Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss to Butler. They are a combined 64-of-106 from the field (60.4 percent) in the past two games, have limited those overmatched opponents to 36-of-110 (32.8 percent shooting) and won the games by a combined total of 75 points. On Friday, they made 26 of 27 free throws. Those numbers would be even more lopsided if coach Tom Crean hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pulled his primary players late in the game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or if Indiana hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gone through a cold spell in the closing minutes. But none of those things mattered to a team that is playing as if it belongs back in the No. 1 spot in the AP poll. Zeller controlled the inside all night as Indiana held a 41-28 rebounding edge, and he had plenty of help. Watford was 5-of-9 from the floor. Oladipo had 16 points and eight rebounds. Jordan Hulls finished with 10 points, and Will Sheehey scored nine, falling one short of putting five Hoosiers in double figures for the second

INDIANAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S JORDAN HULLS, LEFT, DEFENDS AS FLORIDA ATLANTICâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S Jackson Trapp looks for an open teammate. The sixth-ranked Hoosiers won, 88-52, on Friday night in Bloomington, Ind. time this week. Freshman Hanner Mosquera-Perea, who was suspended by the NCAA for Indianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first nine games for accepting improper benefits from a school booster, delivered his best game, too, scoring four points and grabbing 10 rebounds in 14 minutes. Could his emergence make the Hoosiers even better? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the quickest 10 rebounds Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen, man,â&#x20AC;? Zeller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what he does, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what he brings to the table for us, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to help us a lot.â&#x20AC;? It was a rough night for Florida Atlantic (5-7), which went seven minutes without a basket in the first half and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get closer than 28 points in the second half. Only one player, Greg Gantt, scored in double figures, finishing with 25 points â&#x20AC;&#x201D; four short of

breaking Earnest Crumbleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school scoring record (1,559 points). Only two players had more than two rebounds for the Owls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; backup Kelvin Penn (six) and center Dragan Sekelja (five). Coach Mike Jarvis was resigned to the fact that it was going to be this kind of night for his team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew it was going to be almost impossible,â&#x20AC;? Jarvis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if we have all of our players, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beat Indiana right now. But I want to get a team good enough where we can come back here and beat their butts and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be one of my goals for myself before I die.â&#x20AC;? Indiana came into the game leading the nation in scoring (89.2 points) and No. 3 in field goal shooting (52.1 percent). Playing twice in three nights and having some

extra time to work on the finer points only helped. The Hoosiers opened the game by going 9 of 12 from the floor and pulled away quickly. The Hoosiers put it away by scoring seven straight points early in the second half to make it 6429.

No. 22 Notre Dame 89, Niagara 67 SOUTH BEND, IND. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Future Notre Dame opponents take note: If you try to rough up Jack Cooley early, you might just wake a sleeping giant. The 6-foot-9 Fighting Irish forward had 20 points and 10 rebounds in the first half, leading Notre Dame over Niagara. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to go out there and be physical and I got a little upset at the beginning of the game, so that fueled me to play a little harder,â&#x20AC;? said Cooley, who finished with 24 points and 15 rebounds, both season highs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just the way they were playing me and the way our guards were getting me the ball, it was really helpful.â&#x20AC;? Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said Cooley might be the best offensive rebounder in the nation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just his will to go after that thing,â&#x20AC;? Brey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very underrated as an athlete. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quick off his feet. His reach is long. Certainly he has great strength. And he has great hands. Just super hands. When he gets near it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually his.â&#x20AC;? Niagara (5-7) committed 11 fouls in the first half and the Irish (12-1) took advantage, hitting 12 of 14

(86 percent) free throws. Cooley made half of those and was perfect from the stripe. The Irish got rolling as the game wore on, shooting a season-high 62 percent in their 10th consecutive victory. They put the game away with a 23-7 run during a seven-minute span midway through the second half, extending their lead to 20. Niagara coach Joe Mihalich said he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find any weaknesses when watching Notre Dame on tape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re solid, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re selfless, obviously theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very talented,â&#x20AC;? Mihalich said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have good balance. They have perimeter guys, they have the big guy. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you what, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be a tough out.â&#x20AC;?

Olympian saw double life as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;escapeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Eddie Pells AP National Writer

Her image could hardly have been better: Athletic. A knockout. All-American. So accomplished and so wholesome that Disneyland hired her for speaking engagements, the Big Ten named an award after her and the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association made her their pitchwoman. Yet something troubled Suzy Favor Hamilton. The former track star out of Wisconsin, whose speed and talent took her to seven national championships and three Olympics, ultimately dealt with her demons by stealing away to live a life as a highly paid prostitute. An â&#x20AC;&#x153;escape,â&#x20AC;? she called it, that was really a way of masking an American Dream coming unhinged

IN THIS PHOTO TAKEN JULY 17, SUZY FAVOR HAMILTON POSES for a portrait at her home in Shorewood Hills, a suburb of Madison, Wis. The three-time Olympian has admitted leading a double life as an escort. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a real-life tragedy that undercut the myth that success, wealth and fame are a surefire path to happiness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do not expect people to understand,â&#x20AC;? Favor Hamilton said in a fren-

zied burst of tweets after details about her secret life became public Thursday in a report on The Smoking Gun website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the reasons for doing this made sense to me

at the time and were very much related to depression.â&#x20AC;? Stanley Teitelbaum, a psychologist who wrote the book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Athletes Who Indulge Their Dark Side,â&#x20AC;? said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so difficult to understand. After retiring, and spending most of her life trying to live up to a certain ideal and getting her highs from the adrenaline rush of elite, competitive sports, day-to-day life in the civilian world can seem boring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to think of an emotional outlet, maybe in her case, a nonconventional outlet, a way of getting high by somehow being a bad girl in contrast to her image of an upstanding, Olympic athlete,â&#x20AC;? Teitelbaum said. In an interview earlier this year with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Favor Hamilton said she dealt

with anxiety, an eating disorder and struggled with postpartum depression after the birth of her daughter, Kylie, now 7. But, she told the newspaper, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel better than Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever felt.â&#x20AC;? At the time of the interview, it turned out, she was doubling as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kelly Lundy,â&#x20AC;? a $600-an-hour call girl for an escort service based in Las Vegas. Apparently, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for the money. In the Journal Sentinel profile, Favor Hamilton said she gave upward of 60 motivational speeches each year and ran a successful realty firm, in addition to doing appearances for Disney and the Rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Roll Marathon series. The Smoking Gun reported that a check through public records showed she lived in a $600,000 house in the Madison suburb of Shorewood Hills and that neither she nor her hus-

0 #%

band, Mark, had any outward signs of financial difficulties. On Friday, there was no answer at the front door of her house â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a sizable, split-level home at the end of a cul de sac where a hurdle emblazoned with the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;? sits, snow covered, alongside the driveway. Neither Favor Hamilton nor her husband, Mark Hamilton, was at their real estate office Friday, which was closing for the Christmas holiday. In the wake of the news, Disney canceled an upcoming appearance by Favor Hamilton, the Orange County Register reported. The Big Ten conference, which hands out the Suzy Favor Athlete of the Year Award to honor an athlete who won 23 conference and nine NCAA titles, had no comment Friday.

SCOREBOARD

BEEF ‘O’ BRADY’S BOWL

UCF upends Ball St. ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (AP) — Blake Bortles threw for three touchdowns and ran for another to lead Central Florida to a 38-17 victory over Ball State in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl on Friday night. Bortles threw first-half TD passes of 7 and 5 yards to Latavius Murray, who also scored on a two-yard run to help the Knights (10-4) build a 21-point halftime lead and coast to victory in their final game as a member of Conference USA. Bortles had a 6-yard TD run and threw for 272 yards to become UCF’s first 3,000-yard passer since 2002. He also led the Knights in rushing with a career-best 80 yards on nine carries. Ball State (9-4) was hoping to finish with at least 10 wins for the third time in school history, however its high-powered offense sputtered while being held to a season-low point total. Keith Wenning threw a 7-yard TD pass to Willie Snead early in the second quarter, but the Cardinals didn’t get into end zone again until Snead scored on a 16-yard reception with 5 minutes remaining. Bortles completed 22 of 33 passes without an interception, and his three TD passes were a careerbest and tied the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl record. Wenning was 22 of 34 for 217 yards and two TDs for Ball State, which had a six-game winning streak snapped before an announced crowd of 21,759. UCF, which will move into the Big East next sea-

CENTRAL FLORIDA OFFENSIVE LINESMAN THEO GOINS (68) BLOCKS for quarterback Blake Bortles during the fourth quarter of the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl. UCF won, 38-17, Friday in St. Petersburg, Fla. son, rebounded from an overtime loss in the Conference USA title game to finish with double-digit victories for the third time since stepping up to the Football Bowl Subdivision. The Knights also won 10 in 2007 and 2010, when they were Conference USA champions. The Knights’ loss to Tulsa in the Conference USA title game kept them close to home for the postseason. Instead of heading to the Liberty Bowl for the second time in three years, coach George O’Leary and his players settled for a 100mile trek west from Orlando to Tropicana Field, the home of major league baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays. O’Leary also brought his team to St. Petersburg in 2009, losing to Rutgers by three touchdowns. Friday night’s victory improved the 66-year-old coach’s record to 4-5 in bowl games,

including a 2-3 mark with UCF. Ball State’s first bowl appearance since 2008 is the latest step in an impressive turnaround under coach Pete Lembo, whose team suffered early losses to Clemson, Kent State and Northern Illinois before winning six straight down the stretch to put themselves into a position to fill the Big East’s slot in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s game because the league didn’t have enough bowl-eligible teams to meet its commitment. The Cardinals beat two teams from BCS conferences in the same season for the first time, defeating Indiana and South Florida in consecutive weeks. They had the MAC’s second-most productive offense at 471.3 yards and 35 points per game and won four times by scoring the winning points in the final 2 minutes or overtime.

Boise State eyes Cajuns, another Vegas win Pirates LAS VEGAS (AP) — Once again, Boise State is in this gambling city for a bowl game to end yet another successful season. Unlike previous years, though, no one is talking about where the Broncos should really be. There is no BCS controversy for the No. 20 Broncos coming into the Las Vegas Bowl to play Washington. No talk about Boise State being in the chase for a national title, either. But if this season is what rebuilding is all about, Boise State coach Chris Petersen will gladly take it. “Part of the problem with sports today, particularly college football, is that you do well and that sets the bar high,” Petersen said. “In our case it’s set so high that anything but a perfect season is looked upon differently.” Petersen’s team wasn’t perfect this year, though the Broncos aren’t complaining about a 10-2 season and a national ranking. Not after losing six starters from last year to the NFL draft and having to find a quarterback to replace Kellen Moore, who went 50-3 as a four-year starter for Boise State. Still, the year could have been even better had the Broncos not lost a 2119 game at home to San Diego State that might have kept them out of a bigger bowl game. “Win one more game and we’re in the BCS,” Petersen said. Instead Boise State is in the Las Vegas Bowl for the third straight year, hoping to come up a winner in the city once again. They’re five-point favorites against a Washington (7-5) team that had won four in a row before being upended in overtime by Washington State in the regular-season finale. In a bit of a twist, it’s the first of two straight games between the two schools. Boise State travels to Washington next year to

open the season in the newly renovated Husky Stadium. “It sets the stage for an intriguing offseason for nine months before the rematch here at Husky Stadium,” Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said when the matchup was announced. “I think it’s pretty cool.” Boise State has won two straight Las Vegas Bowl games, the first coming after an overtime loss to Nevada cost the then-undefeated Broncos a certain spot in a BCS game in 2010. Last year, Boise State lost 36-35 at home to TCU on its way to a 12-1 season that ended with a blowout win over Arizona State in the bowl. If playing in the relatively minor Las Vegas Bowl was a disappointment for Boise State the last two years, it’s a reward this year after a season that would be good by any standards other than those set by Petersen’s teams in Boise. “It’s a good matchup,” Petersen said. “And the players are always excited to come to Las Vegas.” That goes for the players on Washington, too. Aside from a well-stocked gift room for players to select something for their dorms, the city’s hotels and casinos are always a lure. “A lot of people wanted to go the Vegas Bowl,” quarterback Keith Price said. “Obviously it’s a fun place to be, but we’ve got to channel the team kind of and set certain limitations and make sure we’re focused and ready for the game.” The Huskies looked like they wouldn’t have a postseason during a threegame slide that included blowout losses to Oregon and Arizona. But they rebounded before a startling loss in the Apple Cup. Price will be trying to rebound from an interception in overtime that led to the loss to Washington State and ended the regular season on a down note.

To you, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the miracle of Christmas? The real miracle is Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence The Rev. Darrell Brazell, pastor, New Hope Fellowship, 1449 Kasold Drive: Alone. Afraid. Facing darkness, memories of trauma and the unknown. We all struggle here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we often insist on background noise: music, television, anything to distract. Anything to keep us so busy we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to face our deepest fear â&#x20AC;&#x201D; alone. I see it all the time as I walk with people through traumatic places. Our deepest fear is not the pain but the fact that we believe we were and are utterly alone. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the real miracle of Christmas is â&#x20AC;&#x153;God with us.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuelâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which means, â&#x20AC;&#x153;God with usâ&#x20AC;? (Matthew 1:23). Think about it: the Creator of the universe, the Holy One, Almighty God â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with us? With us in the form of an infant placed in the care of a couple that was undoubtedly young (Joseph was likely 17 and Mary 14 or younger), dirt poor and most certainly outcasts because of the scandalous

ography, and a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. They plan to marry at 4 p.m. March 16, 2013 in Lawrence, Kansas.

Michael Moriarty, L.C., originally from Lawrence, has made his perpetual profession of vows and obtained a licentiate degree in philosophy and a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in theology from Regina Apostolorum Pontifical College in Rome. He lives in Chicago, where he serves as auxiliary chaplain for the Lumen Institute.

Paul Soyland, of Lawrence, has received a graduate certificate in computer and network security from Park University in Parkville, Mo.

The Kansas University Wind Ensemble will perform at Carnegie Hall on March 26. The KU Wind Ensemble, conducted by Paul Popiel, director of bands, will present the world premiere of a work commissioned for the ensemble, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the Shadow of No Towers,â&#x20AC;? by New York-based composer Mohammed Fairouz. Musicians will include: Thomas Strausser, of De Soto; Eric Killen, of Lawrence; Katelyn McKeirnan, of De Soto; Emily Bachert, of Lawrence; Philip Kaul, of De Soto; Colin Lohrenz, of Lawrence; and Ozzie Backus, of Lawrence.

The miracle is giving, not getting The Rev. Robert Leiste, pastor, Redeemer Lutheran Church, 2700 Lawrence Ave.: A song came to mind that captures the mood of the times in which we live or shop: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Santa Claus is Coming to Town.â&#x20AC;? In this song the reason for being good, especially around Christmas, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;gettingâ&#x20AC;? presents. Such is not the miracle for the season. The miracle of Christmas to me is the giving. It the giving by God of his son that started the season. The gift was most precious, the coming of his son into this world. There was a purpose to this gift: his death on the cross and resurrection so that God could continually give us his good gifts. Out of this gift of Jesus we have the greatest gifts of hope, faith and love plus so many more. The miracle of Christmas is the gift of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son. Out of this gift, the next miracle is that the grace of giving has continued both to people we know

(donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with receiving a gift at Christmas; otherwise, Leiste someone would not have anyone to give to) and those we do not know. People still give to the kettles, which helps people they will never see. How many churches like mine are taking a collection to provide gifts for a family or senior that are financially in need? Or also like my church â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we are taking a collection of Sunday school supplies and shoes that will be sent to Belize â&#x20AC;&#x201D; helping those who will never be able to help back since they are so far away? Why do we give? Because we have received the gift of God in the form of his son that brings life, forgiveness and salvation in this world. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Send email to Robert Leiste at raleiste@yahoo.com.

pregnancy. Why? Because God wanted to emphasize a critical point. The message we have all Brazell heard, and with which we struggle most intensely, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t true. We are not alone. We are never alone because Immanuel came to â&#x20AC;&#x153;be with us.â&#x20AC;? There has never been a moment in any of our lives where Immanuel has not been with us. The problem is that the pain, struggle and confusion of this life often prevent us from perceiving His presence. Yet He is here. I see it often. I see Immanuel open peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes and hearts to see Him, and then, even the most painful memories undergo an amazing transformation. Nothing in the circumstance changes yet everything is different. Why? Because Immanuel shows us we are not alone. The real miracle of Christmas is â&#x20AC;&#x153;God with us.â&#x20AC;?

Dear Annie: I want to reply to “Twice Bitten,” who is being bitten by tiny bugs. I had the same problem. After several visits to the dermatologist and tests with no diagnosis, I tried lavender soap and lotion. Bugs do not like the smell of lavender. You also can sprinkle lavender flowers on your carpet and use lavender sachets in your hamper and in and around your bed. — Also Been Bitten Dear From: We heard from hundreds of readers on this subject. When we initially did our research, we found too many possibilities to print. So here are a few more: From Casper, Wyo: My friend had a similar experience after a cruise. It turned out she had contracted scabies, probably from an infected mattress. East Coast: As a pest control technician, I get many complaints like this. After a thorough in-

spection and finding no visible pests, I suggest quite a few of the same options you did. But I have noticed that this often happens when the weather turns colder and our furnaces kick back on. It tends to dry out the skin, with the sensation of being bitten by bugs. A humidifier may do the trick. Louisville, Ky.: That poor woman who is plagued by bites has been bitten by “no-see-um” bugs. They are so named because they are too small to see with the na-

Mr. Magoo ages well NBC reaches back in television history to broadcast the 1962 animated holiday musical “Mister Magoo’s Christmas Carol” (7 p.m. Saturday). A favorite for years, it fell into relative obscurity in recent decades, showing up sporadically on the Cartoon Network. NBC hasn’t aired “Magoo” in prime time since 1967. Arguably, one of the reasons this special disappeared is Magoo himself. There’s something a tad antique about the myopic character. Most of the cartoon’s jokes were at the expense of his visual handicap. And this special features a character even older than Magoo. Tiny Tim is “played” by the character Gerald McBoing Boing, a popular cartoon for the small United Productions of America animation studio dating back to 1950. ‘‘Magoo” is notable for being the very first Christmas program made especially for television. Its success paved the way for “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (1964) and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (1965). It’s also the only one with the heart and soul of a Broadway musical. The songs range from the celebratory (“The Lord’s Bright Blessing”) to the sad and poignant (“Alone in the World”). The music was by Jule Styne and the lyrics by Bob Merrill. Once finished with “Magoo,” they collaborated on a play called “Funny Girl,” a vehicle for Barbra Streisand’s exploding career. A recent survey of NPR listeners revealed that many still rank “Magoo” as one of their holiday favorites. Nostalgic viewers can celebrate NBC’s decision to dust off “Magoo.” Young viewers should enjoy this for the very first time.

ked eye. I was bitten last summer and almost lost my mind until a friend told me to buy white vinegar and spray it on my sheets and pillows in the morning and leave them uncovered to dry. After several nights of this, the bites stopped. Ontario, Calif.: I had a similar problem, and it turned out to be rat mites. We got rid of the rats in our attic, but their tiny mites dropped down into the house. Our exterminator identified them when I put one under a microscope. Washington State: “Twice Bitten” should see a doctor and ask about the Norwegian scabies. Unlike regular scabies, they do not leave the telltale tracks and are harder to identify. Ventura, Calif.: One of the laundry detergent makers added a stainrelease chemical that has caused many of my friends to have the same

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Saturday, Dec. 22: This year you often will go to extremes. How you feel after the fact will cause you to employ some self-discipline. If you are single, your desirability speaks for itself. If you are attached, the two of you blend together well. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Your wildest dreams could not predict the importance of being money savvy today. An unexpected expense heads in. Tonight: Getting into the spirit of the holiday. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Others associate you with stability. However, after basking in dreams of mistletoe and gratefulness, you suddenly could turn volatile. Tonight: Are we overindulging again? Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You wake up and think it is a perfect day, but by noon, that thought will be moot. Many of you might sense a disappointment heading your way. Tonight: No overthinking things, please. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Only when you can distance yourself from a demanding friend will the good times begin. Whether it is baking cookies or out finishing last-minute details, you beam. Tonight: Let someone’s hostility be his or her problem — not yours. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You flourish in your private dream world, where you play out what could happen this Christmas. Necessity jolts you out of this reverie. Tonight: Music, Christmas gifts and sweet-smelling candles.

problem. Louisiana: Years ago, my husband returned from working in a remote area. That night, I was bitten by some type of bug. We searched the bed for hours. Nothing. This went on for weeks, but with only a slight redness, there was nothing to show a doctor. My husband started to believe I was imagining things. After a month of ridiculously intensive housecleaning, preventive bug spraying, bed checks and sleepless nights, I felt a bite and instinctively grabbed the culprit. It was dark brown and slightly larger than a pinhead. I took “the remains” to an entomologist. He studied it, said he’d never seen anything like it and asked if he could keep it. — Send questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You seem practical and together. You know exactly what to do, and when you should do it. Tonight: A must appearance. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Your sensitivity emerges when dealing with a partner. While you might’ve thought you had everything handled, you’ll discover otherwise. Tonight: Finally, all is well. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You could get into being the one who is centered, as everyone around you is stressed. You Scorpios can be tough, but you also can be very caring. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.” Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You seem determined to handle everything perfectly in the next few days. On another level, you feel inspired by a family member. Tonight: Play it low-key, if possible. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  The kid in you emerges, which delights many people. Think positively about all the potential proposals you could make. Tonight: Don’t forget to pull the shades down. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You could be overwhelmed by others’ requests, as they feel more like demands. Just when things get mellow, another task heads your way. Tonight: Meet friends at a favorite spot. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Know the impact of your words. Someone’s reaction to a comment, which wasn’t meant as a criticism, could light up the sky. Tonight: Invite friends over. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
